£0.5m Project Launched Into Post Processing for Metal AM

Holtex have recently developed ElectroForm(TM). Currently at proof-of-concept stage with a patent pending, ElectroForm enables the operator to conform the tool to the unique geometry of individual additive manufactured components. This enables bespoke geometry correction and fine surface roughness targeting. In the Advanced Dynamic Electrochemical Polishing Techniques to Improve Additive Manufactured Surface Conditions (ADEPT) Project we will team with the University of Huddersfield (UoH) to develop ElectroForm to TRL7/TRL8. The UoH EPSRC Future Metrology Hub is one of eight recently created EPSRC Future Manufacturing Research Hubs.

Holtex have been successful in launching a £492k project through Innovate UK SMART grants to progress this exciting new technology and are aiming to deliver Alpha machines within 18 months. For further information please get in touch via our contact page.
